The account – which is currently available via Bankhall, Millfield, Tenet and Lifesearch – offers a menu-based proposition, including life cover, critical-illness cover, income protection and household insurance.

Sesame has a total of around 7,000 advisers across the UK and those which are regulated to advise on protection will have access to the protection account.
